This dictionary is divided into two main sections, each containing approximately 9,000 entries. In the first section, English to Cherokee, the information is organized in 3 columns. In column 1 are found English words in standard English orthography and in alphabetical order, in column 2 the romanized representation of the Cherokee translation and in column 3, the Cherokee word given in the Cherokee syllabary. The syllabary consists of six vowels modified by 17 consonants. The second section is the Cherokee to English portion and is organized in 2 columns only. Column 1 contains Cherokee words organized by vowel groups and column 2 the English equivalents. The pages preceding the dictionary section give the Cherokee syllabary as invented by Sequoyah, the modified symbols in use today and the romanized equivalent for each symbol. The numerical symbols invented by Sequoyah are also given although these were not adopted by the Cherokee. Following the dictionary section, we find cardinal and ordinal numbers, days of the week, months of the year and short phrases of common usage, all given from English to Cherokee only. The book includes examples of Cherokee symbols as used by Sequoyah and as used today. Has both Cherokee/English and English/Cherokee sections. 359 pages #0820 SCARCE
